Look out, road warriors. Acer has expanded its lineup of ultraportable notebooks with fresh offerings based on Intel's CULV 2010 platform. That means Core i3, i5, and i7 processors all around, with prices starting as low as $599.99 for the cheapest TimelineX 1830T variant.
The new family includes the 11.6" 1830T, 13.3" 3820T, 14" 4820T, and 15.6" 5820T, ranging from proper ultraportable to not really-all-that-ultraportable-but-still-sort-of-slim-and-light form factors. Acer wasn't afraid to wander off the beaten path, either. The new TimelineX 1830T-68U118, for instance, packs a Core i7-680 1.46GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive, all for a suitably pricey $899.99—yet it still weighs in at 3.09 lbs. and has rated battery life of "up to eight hours."
Then there's the 14-inch Aspire 4820TG, which features a Core i5 CPU and switchable Mobility Radeon HD 5620 discrete graphics from AMD. That variant starts at a surprisingly reasonable $799.99, but Acer doesn't cite battery life or weight. (The regular 4820T is supposed to weigh about 4.7 lbs.)
